Superior Features 

Lupton Pivoted Windows 



(Horizontally Pivoted) 

All members are of low carbon one piece 
steel sections, designed for necessary strength 
without needless weight. 

Frame members and muntins are assembled 
with flush joints. The intersection of the mun-

tins is illustrated above. The design of the 
interlock combines most effective placing of 
metal with the least possible deformation, 
and its ample strength against both wind 
pressure and wind suction has been fully 
demonstrated. The greater the external pres- 
sure, the tighter is the lock of the intersecting 
members. In addition, the Lupton joint gives 
less opportunity for moisture to enter and 
cause corrosion. 

The ends of the muntins and the corner 
joints of the frame members are riveted. 

All Lupton Dealer Stock and Standard Win- 
dows use an angle Section 308 as the frame 
member. This member makes attachment 
extremely simple, and gives ample strength 
in brick and concrete because it has a continu- 
ous bearing in the wall. It should be used in

all cases, even when the windows are other- 
wise special. 

Ventilators 

Ventilators make a 2-point contact all 
around the enclosed air space, minimizing air 
leakage. 

The weather-tightness of a pivoted ventila- 
tor depends on the accuracy of its fit. By 
making the hinges integral with the structure 
of the ventilator and window, a permanent 
close fit is assured. 

Ventilators in Dealer Stock and Standard 
Windows are pivoted 2 inches above center. 
The hinges are integral with the weathering 
members, and are reinforced with steel plates 
riveted to the weathering members. There

Section 336, and enclosed air space.

are no spacers, hence the hinge pins cannot 
sag. A continuous double weathering is main- 
tained when the ventilator is closed. 

The Lupton Stay Bar deserves special notice 
for its strength and simplicity, and for the 
secure lock it affords. It is an angle bar, suit- 
ably notched and folding back against the 
window when closed. Because of its shape it 
is much stronger than a flat bar. 

At the option of the purchaser, ventilators 
are provided with Stay Bar operators, or with 
Spring Catch and Chain operation. The price 
for sill length Chain is the same as for Stay 
Bars. Unless otherwise specified, we furnish 
Stay Bars on all ventilators except the upper 
one of a pair, and Spring Catch and Chain 
operation for upper ventilators. The method 
of operation should, however, be specified when 
ordering. For windows with high sills, we 
furnish a special Chain Clip, No. EL- 2365, to 
be fastened to the wall below the sill. 

If desired, Lupton or Pond Operating Device 
may be added to control the ventilators in 
lines or groups, at an increase in price. 

The locations and sizes of ventilators in 
Lupton Dealer Stock and Standard Windows 
are shown on pages 9 and 10. Any departure 
Irom these Standards comes under the head- 
ing of Special Windows and must be made to 
order at an increase in price. 

Window Cleaners' Anchors 

Where window cleaners' anchors are ordered, 
those made by the Everfast Window Clean- 
ing Device Company, Inc., 62-64 West Wash- 
ington Street, Chicago, 111., will be furnished, 
unless others are specified. 

Mullions 

T-Bar mullions (Sections 121 and 339) are 
invariably furnished where mullions are re- 
quired. They are attached outside the win- 



dows with stems projecting either inward or 
outward. See table on page 1 7 for limit heights 
of these mullions; also for details showing 
placing of mullions and their length when cut. 



SECTIONS 
308 339 







Perspective showing formation of mullion. 

The jamb members (Section 308) of all win- 
dows are punched with horizontally slotted 
holes. The mullions have vertically slotted 
holes. This facilitates erecting and leveling 
the window. 

Paint 

Lupton Pivoted Windows are given one shop 
coat of paint, oven-dried. They should receive 
at least two coats of paint after erection. 

Shipped with Windows 

Stay Bars or Spring Catches for ventilators, 
Glazing Clips and Standard Wall Ties are 
regularly furnished. Mullions and Mullion 
Bolts are included when specified. We do not 
furnish expansion bolts. See under 'Tnfor- 
mation Required with the Order", page 18, 
for items necessary in specifications. 

Stacking 

Lupton Steel Windows should be carefully 
stacked as soon as received, by standing the 
units on edge on three or more level pieces of 
lumber, such as 3 x 4's, with strongly braced 
uprights against which the windows may lean. 
Do not lay windows flat or pile one upon 
another.

Carried only in 14" x 20" glass size. 



Dealer Stock Windows are the most used 
sizes of Lupton stationary and pivoted win- 
dows in 12 x 18 and 14 x 20 in. glass sizes. 
They are strictly standard in construction and 
are carried completely assembled and ready 
for shipment by Lupton agents and dealers 
throughout the country. 

Lupton Dealer Stock Windows should al- 
ways be used where possible in preference to 
Standard, but non-stock sizes. They cost no 
more and can be delivered immediately. 

Lupton Standard Windows include all those 
sizes and ventilator arrangements in common 
use. They are riot assembled in advance, but 
large stocks of the cut bars are always carried 
in our factory ready for quick assembly. 

Symbols Used to Designate Windows 

The following information is given you 
so that you can intelligently order Lupton 
Pivoted Windows by following layouts shown 
on this and the next page. 

Dimensions in inches preceding window unit 
nomenclature indicates glass size, namely 12" 
x 18* and i 4 "x2o". 



All other glass sizes are special. 

Numerals of nomenclature indicate the fol- 
lowing: 

First Numeral — number of lights wide. 

Second Numeral— number of lights high. 

Third Numeral — number of ventilators. 

Fourth Numeral — number of lights per 
ventilator. 

Fifth Numeral — number of stationary lights 
high between bottom of window and bottom 
of ventilator. 

Sixth Numeral— number of lights high be- 
tween bottom of window and bottom of upper 
ventilator. 

Examples: 14/20 56 indicates a unit taking 
14" x 20" glass, five lights wide, six lights high, 
stationary. 14/20 451 81 is a unit taking 14" 
x 20" glass, four lights wide, five lights high, 
having one (1) eight (8) light ventilator, one 
(1) light high between bottom of window and 
bottom of ventilator. 12/18 562614 is a unit 
taking 12" x 18" glass, five lights wide, six 
lights high, having two (l) six (6) light venti- 
lators, having one (1) light high between bot- 
tom of window and bottom of lower ventilator

and four (4) lights between bottom of win- 
dow and bottom of upper ventilator. 

Indicate the number of window units in 
each wall opening by writing such number 
before the window symbol. For example, 2 
openings 3-1 2/18 461 81 indicates that for 



each of 2 openings 3 units are required of 
the window symbol given. Consequently, 
2 mullion bars are needed for each opening. 
Sometimes units of different widths or hav- 
ing different ventilators are used to fill in 
opening. For example, 2-12/18 36; 2-12 18 
56161; 1-12/18 46183. .

LUPTON PIVOTED WINDOWS 



Lupton Standard Pivoted Windows com- 
prise all units shown on page lb in 12 x 18 and 
14 x 20 in. glass. Cut members of those units 
are carried regularly in stock at the factory, 
ready for assembling. By combining suitable 
units and taking advantage of high and low 
ventilator locations, all ordinary requirements 
can be met. 

Certain sizes of Lupton Pivoted Windows 
are in sufficient demand to be carried com- 
pletely assembled in dealer stock. When so 
assembled, they are known as Dealer Stock 



Windows. These sizes are shown on pages 
9 and 10. There is no difference in the quality 
or price between Stock and Standard Windows, 
but the former can be delivered immediately. 
Unless otherwise specified, Stay Bars are 
furnished for all ventilators except the upper 
one of a pair. It is always better to specify 
operators desired, also sill height. See "Infor- 
mation Required with the Order/' page 18. 
Order by symbols appearing under the units. 
See pages 9 and 10 for explanation of sym- 
bols. Always specify glass sizes wanted. 




As mentioned in the text, we carry at all times a large stock of standard bars ready for assembling into window 
units as soon as your order is received. The view above shows a section of the Lupton Bar Stock storage. 
In addition to this large stock of standard bars, certain units shown on page 9 are carried in stock in our ware- 
houses and also many dealer warehouses throughout the country. The wide selection of our standard stock 
sizes permits us to fill quickly most all Pivoted Window requirements.

LUPTON PIVOTED WINDOWS 



Wall Opening Measuring Points and Mullion Details 



Wall opening dimensions are identical with 
the nominal dimensions of Lupton Steel Win- 
dows. For multiple window openings 2 inches 
are added to the width for each mullion. 

This relation of window to opening is shown 
in the perspective drawing on this page which 
shows also the outside and inside positions of 
mullions. 

Mullion flanges are placed outside of win- 
dows. See table opposite for limit heights of 
mullions. 

When windows are set on sills of steel angles 
or channels, the stems of mullions must al- 
ways project outside. 

Drawings below show end cuts of standard 
mullions. Upper ends stop flush with lintels. 
Lower ends enter brick, concrete, wood and 
tile sills to a depth of 1% inches. (2 inches 
from measuring point.)

Information Required with the Order 



Early or immediate shipment of Lupton 
Pivoted Windows is frequently required. Such 
orders can be rilled immediately from dealer 
stock provided the customer furnishes complete 
information. It occasionally happens that a 
rush order is held up for several days because 
the customer has forgotten to give us full 
information. 

It is essential that the following points be 
clearly and completely covered. Before you 
send your order the quantities should be 
checked to-.»see that they are correct and the 
description compared with the list below; 



i. 



Shipping Date desired (on non-stock 
sizes time must be allowed for assem- 
bling). 

Glass Sizes. (All Standard Windows 
including Dealer Stock are 12 x 18 in. 
and 14 x 20 in. glass sizes only.) 

Sizes of Windows, in number of lights 
wide and high. Always specify width 
(in number of lights) first. Use symbols 
suggested on page 9. 

Number of Ventilators in Each 
Window, also their size and location. 
Use symbols. 



Number of Window Units in Each 
Opening. This tells us how many mul- 
lions are required. 

Size of Openings, as a check on glass 
and window sizes. See table, page 19. 

Height of Sills from Floor. This 
gives us the proper length of chains 
when chains are required, and tells us 
whether the lower ventilator should be 
operated by Chain or Stay Bar. 

Where sill height is not specified, we supply 
Lupton Stay Bars with all single ventilators, also 
with the lower ventilators of pairs. Spring Catches 
and Chains are furnished with upper ventilators 
of pairs. Where sill height is specified we furnish 
Spring Catch and Chain operation only for 
ventilators whose bottom edges are more than 6 
ft. above the floor. If for any reason Stay Bars 
are wanted on high windows or Chains on low 
windows, that fact must be noted in the order. See 
illustrations, page 6. 

Kind of Wall Fastenings Required. 
This depends on the construction of the 
walls — whether brick, concrete or steel; 
also on the method of attaching win- 
dows. It is necessary to give attach- 
ments in detail. To do this refer to J 
pages 12 to 1 6 inclusive, and specify by 
the numbers in circles the details at 
head, jambs and sill which will be used. 



Lupton Special Pivoted Windows 



All windows which depart in any particular 
from the foregoing specifications of Lupton 
Standard and Dealer Stock Windows are 
classed as Special, require more time for deliv- 
ery and cost more. Windows which have the 
same number and size of lights, but which 
have some requirement not included in the 
Standard and Dealer Stock Windows are 
classed as Special. For example, the use of 
frame members other than Section 308; differ- 
ent size or location of ventilators; different 
location of ventilator hinges. 

Underwriters' Windows in standard sizes are 
not classed as Special. 

We will furnish, at an extra charge, double 
connecting arms for the simultaneous control 



of two ventilators in a window unit. These 
arms attach to adjustable brackets so that the 
ventilator is closed tight without slamming. If 
upper and lower ventilators for the full width 
of the units are connected by double arms, the 
jambs must have a reveal for clearance. See 
page 20. 

It is recommended that ventilators not ex- 
ceeding two lights in height be used. Single 
ventilators should not exceed 5 ft. in width or 
3 ft. 6 in. in height. 

To order Lupton Special Pivoted Windows, 
the same system of symbols is to be used as 
for Standard and Dealer Stock Windows. 
Glass size must be specifically stated. 



LUPTON PIVOTED WINDOWS 



Wall Opening Sizes 



Standard and Dealer Stock Sizes 

All frame members are assumed to have a 
•Hs inch bearing at head, j ambs and sill. Open- 
ing sizes and nominal window sizes are taken 
from these bearing points and are therefore 
identical, being *y& inch on each edge smaller 
than the overall dimensions of the window. 
Wherever window sizes are given, nominal or 
opening sizes are meant. The table opposite 
shows symmetrical combinations of standard 
units with resulting wall openings. 

Special Sizes 

Window sizes for Special Glass using angle 
frame member Section 308, are figured as 
follows: 

For single units, add % in. to width or 
height of each light. Multiply by the number 
of lights and add 1/i inch. 

For width of multiple units, add together 
the width as above of the various units in an 
opening, and add 2 inches to the width for 
each mullion. (Use glass sizes as for station- 
ary lights when figuring opening sizes.) 

Glass Sizes 

Lights in stationary sections of Standard 
Window and Dealer Stock units are the full 
12x18 in. or 14 x 20 in. size. 

The outside lights of all ventilators are 
reduced 1 in. in width or height, or both, to 
allow for the space taken by the weathering 
around the ventilators. See diagram below.

Diagram above is typical of a unit using 14 in. x 20 in. 
Glass. The glass sizes of ventilators, whether standard or 
special, are reduced in the same manner, 1 inch in height or 
width or both. 

A handy celluloid slide scale for figuring 
heights and widths of window openings will be 
sent free on request.

DAVID LUPTON'S SONS COMPANY 



Designing the Walls 



Details on pages 12 to 1 6 inclusive show the 
commonly used methods of arranging wall 
openings to receive Lupton Standard or Dealer 
Stock Pivoted Windows. Opening sizes are 
identical with the nominal window sizes. 
Where several units occur in an opening, 2 
inches are added for the width of each stand- 
ard T-Bar mullion. 



(£0 

t WWDOWDM 


ZtACHMULLWN ADD 
( WINDOW- DIMmiON % 


WWDOWD/M. t 

























































































Lupton Standard Mullions do not attach 
to the head or lintel. Their stems extend in 
the brick or concrete sills 2 inches below the 
measuring lines of the windows. Recesses 
must be provided in the sills to receive the 
mullions if the sills are set before the windows 
are erected. 

Mullions are always attached with the 
flanges of the T-Bars' outside of the window 

& 




frame members. In brick and concrete walls, 
the stems may project either inside or out- 
side, according to the size of units. (See page 
17.) In steel framing the stem must always 
project outside. (See detail 5, page 14.) 

Windows are secured by bolts, clips or grout. 
The frame members are punched at the sides 
for mullion bolts and at the sills for Wall 
Ties. Standard Clips and Wall Ties (see page 
23) should be used where possible. No holes 
are provided in vertical leg of top frame 
member unless specified by customer. 

If but one window is used in an opening in 
a brick or concrete wall, special provision is 
necessary to insert it. (See under ''Building 
the Walls," page 21.) 

With all kinds of steel windows it is essen- 
tial that the structural steel lintels or other 
supporting members shall carry their load 
without deflecting upon the windows so that 
ventilators will not bind. 

A special case arises in brick and concrete 
walls where windows have full width upper 
and lower ventilators connected by double 
arms. To give clearance for the arms in brick, 
the jambs must have a reveal (see lower left A 
detail), or a special jamb plate (see lower right 
detail). For concrete, see center detail at bot- 
tom. Otherwise, it is necessary for the end 
units of windows to have stationary lights 
adjoining jambs.

LUPTON PIVOTED WINDOWS 



Building the Walls 



Lupton Pivoted Windows are built to sup- 
port glass and to withstand wind pressure after 
they are properly placed in the walls. They are 
not built to endure miscellaneous rough hand- 
ling or to hold the bricks and lintels in place. 

We recommend that the walls be built 
before windows are set 

This applies to all types of construction 
except sometimes in brick walls where but 
one window unit per opening is used. See 
under "Brick Walls" below. 

Brick Walls: Standard practice is shown 
in details on page 12. Brick sills and poured- 
in-place concrete sills should not be set until 
windows are erected. Jambs of multiple open- 
ings should have a vertical groove fy& inch 
wide, \yi inches deep, raked out of mortar by 
the mason when laying the brick joint. 

CLtAkANCt MUST&t Ltf-TAT 
ONt J A Mb TO WJtlTSMGLt 
LW1TJ 






Openings taking but one window unit must 
have one jamb left unfinished until the windows 
are set. Alternative constructions are to make 
each jamb with a reveal (detail 70, page 12), 
or to chip the bricks in each jamb so that one 
side of the window can be inserted and the other 
side swung into place. (See detail 11, page 12.) 
If detail 11 is used, it is necessary to provide 
extra clearance at head or sill to avoid interfer- 
ence with thewindowwhenthelatteris inserted. 

Where pre-cast, terra cotta or cut stone sills 
are used, the lintel must allow window to clear 
sill before being placed in final position or sill 
must be made lower than usual practice, 
building the sill to the desired height with 
grout after windows are set. Mullion stems 
must enter recesses or joints in sill. 

The lintels may be structural steel mem- 
bers with a continuous plate, angles, or 34 
inch groove for attaching windows. (See de- 
tail 9, page 12, and detail 12, page 14.) 





Concrete Walls: Grooves not less than 
2 inches wide, l}4 inches deep, are moulded in 
jambs and lintel. (Page 13.) 

Where but one window unit is used in an 
opening, grooves in the lintel and one jamb 
must be larger as required to insert the window 
or the jambs must be made with a reveal (de- 
tail 8, page 13). 

Poured-in-place sills are recommended. If 
pre-cast or cut stone sills are used, the groove 
at head must be deep enough to allow window 
to be lifted clear of sill before being set. (See 
details below.) 



■.••. :■ ■ • ■ **. - - . * 




Steel Framing: Either of two treatments 
may be used at the head. The first is to attach 
to the lintel an angle member having a vertical 
inner face not less than 2^ inches deep and to 
attach the window to it by Lupton Standard 
Clips No. EL-435. (^ ee detail 12, page 
14.) The second is to rivet two channels back 
to back with spreaders between them, mak- 
ing a % inch space to receive the heads of the 
windows. (See detail 15, page 15.) For the 
jambs and sills, angles or channels are used 
with clips or straps to secure the windows. 
(See details on pages 14 and 15.) The T-Bar 
mullion is always placed outside the window, 
with stem projecting out. 

Wood Walls: The standard Lupton angle 
frame member, Section 308, may be attached 
to wood walls in a great variety of ways. 
Typical details are given on page 16. // is 
essential that the lintels shall carry their load 
without deflection against the window.

Erecting and Glazing the Windows 

Note: Hinges are ABOVE center oj ventilators and are on the inner face of windows. Their position 
should be noted when placing windows. It should also be noted that putty is on inside oj windows. 



Brick Walls: The end window units in 
each opening are first set with the flanges 
of frame members Section 308 in the jamb 
grooves; then the remaining units and their 
mullions are set and loosely bolted; after which 
they are leveled and wedged against the jambs 
and head. The mullion bolts and the bolts or 
clips at thf lintel are then tightened and the 
jamb grooves and sill are grouted by the brick 
mason. Mullions are set with flanges outside 
of windows, with stem turned in or out. 

If sills are left unfinished until windows are 
in place, the windows must be supported on 
wood blocks or bricks, which are set under 
corners of windows only in order not to distort 
the windows. 

The head and jambs should be grouted after 
the sill has been finished. 

Single units in openings are treated accord- 
ing to the provision made to receive them. 
(See under "Building the Walls," page 21.) 

Concrete Walls: Same general procedure 
as for brick walls. The grooves in concrete are 
grouted after windows are wedged. If there is 
but one unit per opening, it must be inserted 
in the larger jamb groove first. 

Steel Framing: The windows are at- 
tached by bolts or clips as shown on pages 14 
and 15. They are first loosely bolted and lined 
up by wedges, after which the bolts are tight- 
ened. The mullions must be set with the stems 
turned outside and the flanges outside the 
windows. 

Wood Framing: Use same general proce- 
dure as for steel framing, except that screws 



are used instead of clips. Groove is required 
for mullion stem whether turned out or in, 
unless clearance is provided below window. 

After Erection : Wires holding ventila- 
tors shut are removed and Spring Catches or 
Stay Bars attached. 

Glazing : Lupton Steel Windows are glazed 
after erection. The lights are held by the wire 
Glazing Clips No. 039, shown on page 23, four 
being furnished for each light. They are 
sprung by hand into holes in the muntins and 
frame, and their elasticity permits the glass 
to expand without breaking. 

Glass should be carefully back-puttied, and 
putty should also be applied inside and bev- 
eled. Special putty for steel windows should 
be used, as ordinary putty dries out and 
breaks away. / 

When ordering glass it is important to note 
that border lights in ventilators are smaller 
than the other lights. See "Glass Sizes in 
Ventilators," page 19. 

Painting: Windows are painted one coat 
at factory. They should receive at least two 
coats of paint after erection. 

Operators: Where it is desired to operate 
several ventilators simultaneously, Lupton 
Operating Device is furnished. This device 
will not answer where unusually long lines of 
ventilators are to be operated simultaneously. 
For long lines. Pond Operating Device, either 
hand or motor operated, is recommended. 
Lupton Operating Device is described on pages 
40 to 47 of this catalogue. Pond Operating 
Device is described in another catalogue.

Specifications 



Steel Windows 



1. All windows throughout (except as otherwise 
noted on drawings) shall be Lupton Steel 
Pivoted Windows, made by David Lupton' s 
Sons Company, Philadelphia. 

2. Members* shall be solid rolled steel sec- 
tions of Lupton standard shape. Frame 
members shall be angle section No. 308 with 
standard punching for attachment to adja- 
cent work. Muntins shall be section No. 300. 
Joints shall be flush. Vertical muntins shall 
interlock with horizontal muntins at the 
joints, so that reforming of bars is unneces- 
sary to hold them in place. After cutting, no 
member shall be less than ^ inch deep. 

3. Ventilators shall be hung on heavy steel 
hinges, cut integral with the weathering and 
so applied as to preserve weathering contact. 

4. Weathering of ventilators shall provide a 2- 
point contact, enclosing an air space all 
around ventilator. Weep holes shall be pro- 
vided where needed to drain condensation 
outside the windows. 



5. Ventilators, not otherwise indicated, shall be 
furnished with Stay Bars. The Stay Bar, 
when locked, shall draw the ventilator tightly 
shut. Ventilators so specified and shown on 
drawings shall have Spring Catches and 
Chain. 

6. Mullions shall be T-Bars, Sections No. 121 
and 339. 

Note: See table "Limit Heights of T-Bar 
Mullions/' page 17. 

In steel framing the mullion sterns must 
always be turned outside. 

7. T-Bar mullions shall have slotted holes, with 
suitable bolts and washers for attaching 
windows. 

8. Wire Glazing Clips shall be furnished, four 
to each light, of shape to be easily applied 
and to hold the glass securely. 

9. Windows shall be given a shop coat of win- 
dow manufacturer's standard paint, oven- 
dried. 



Field Work 



10. Windows shall be erected by (state by 
whom). 

11. When erecting the windows, units next to 
jambs shall be inserted first. Where sills are 
unfinished, windows shall be blocked up at 
lower corners only. Mullions shall be set as 
window units are set, and loosely bolted to said 
units. Next, all units shall be carefully lined 
up and wedged at jambs and head. All clips 
shall then be bolted tight and (in brick and 
concrete walls) the head and jambs grouted. 



Finally, the wires holding ventilators shall be 
removed and Stay Bars or Spring Catches 
and Chains attached.

LUPTON PIVOTED WINDOWS 



Specifications 

(CONTINUED) 



in special steel window putty. This bed or 
back putty must prevent any contact of the 
glass with steel members, and shall be struck 
off flush with steel members. Four glazing 



clips shall be used with each light. Inside 
putty shall be even with the daylight line of 
the window members and shall be beveled 
neatly. 



Window Openings 

The architect will find the following specifications useful to insure correct 
preparation of the walls to receive windows. Such portions as are appropriate 
should be included in the steel and masonry specifications. The intended 
connection at head, jambs and sill should be shown in the working plans. 
See recommended details, pages 12 to 16. 



All wall opening dimensions shown on plans are to 
follow the nominal dimensions of the windows, as 
shown in details, diagrams of unit sizes, and table 
of combination widths, page 19. Except as other- 
wise specified, walls are to be built before win- 
dows are set. 

Opening dimensions : The dimensions conform to 
window manufacturer's standards, and are to be 
followed by the masonry contractor without devia- 
tion. Details for attachment of windows are like- 
wise shown on plans and must be carefully followed. 

Jambs: In openings for multiple units in brick 
walls, the masonry contractor shall leave a groove 
or open joint, % inch wide and V/i inch deep in 
the first (or other as shown on drawings) joint 
from outer face of wall. (Detail 31, page 12.) 
This open joint shall be plumb and true and free 
from mortar and other obstruction. In concrete 
jambs, a similar groove, not less than 2 inches 
wide by 1}4 inches deep, shall be located to corre- 
spond with the groove in brick jambs (Detail 27, 
page 13). Where single units of windows are used 
in brick or tile walls, they may be set while walls 
are being built; or one jamb may be left unfinished 
until unit is inserted; reveals may be used with 
clip (by Lupton), and anchor bolts (by others: See 
Detail 70, page 12) : or the corners of the inner 



bricks at the grooves may be chipped to give clear- 
ance to insert the windows. (Detail 11, page 12.) 

Lintels: In brick walls, a structural steel lintel 
shall be furnished by the steel contractor, this 
member to provide a bearing for the windows. 
(Detail 9, page 12.) If sill is to be pre-cast con- 
crete, terra cotta, or cut stone, the lintel must 
permit windows to be raised to clear sill before 
being lowered in place on the sill. In concrete 
walls a groove is to be cast in lintel not less than 2 
inches wide byl}4 inches deep in line with grooves 
in jambs. (Detail 28, page 13.) Lintels must carry 
their load without deflecting on windows and have 
proper provision for receiving windows. 

Sills : Pre-cast, terra cotta or cut stone sills shall 
be set before windows are installed and shall con- 
tain recesses not less than 2 inches deep to receive 
the lower ends of the mullion stems. (Detail, page 
17.) Brick and poured sills shall be left unfinished 
until the windows have been erected. (Deiail 14, 
page 12; detail 17, page 13.) 

Grouting: In all masonry walls after windows have 
been set and leveled, the masonry contractor shall 
fill the spaces between the frame members and 
the jambs, sill and concrete lintel with cement 
grout neatly pointed.

Lupton Underwriters' Pivoted Windows 



UNDERWRITERS LABORATORIES, IKC 



FIRE WINDOW FRAME NO.S. 



Important: Lupton Underwriters' Pivoted Windows are furnished only 
when specified in bid and mentioned in contract. 



Wherever wire glass is used for fire protec- 
tion it is advisable to specify Underwriters' 
Windows and have the Underwriters' Label. 
This insures that the full measure of safety 
intended is actually secured. 

Lupton Dealer Stock and Standard Win- 
dows of prescribed sizes may be converted 
into Underwriters' Windows by the addition 
of glazing angles and the special hardware 
illustrated on page 27. 

As all the members are standard, orders for 
Lupton Underwriters' Windows can be filled 
from bars in factory stock, subject only to the 
delay for adding the hardware and glazing 
angles. This is the most economical way to 
buy Underwriters' Windows. Such orders can 
usually be filled promptly after receipt of com- 
plete information. 

Where immediate delivery is essential, 
Dealer Stock Windows can be altered at our 
Philadelphia, Cleveland and Chicago ware- 
houses, at a slight extra cost, to receive the 
special glazing angles and hardware before 
shipment. Windows cannot be altered to receive 
Underwriters" Label after shipment. 

Following are the Underwriters' Laborato- 
ries' specifications, in condensed form, so far 
as they apply to pivoted windows: 



1. 



Single Window units cannot exceed 84 
sq. ft. in area, with neither dimension ex- 
ceeding 12 ft. When mullions are used, 
each window unit cannot exceed 7 ft. in 
width or 12 ft. in height. 



The exposed glass area must not exceed 
350 sq. in. in any light, measured from 
toe to toe of the glazing angles. (Stand- 
ard sizes are less than this.) One-quarter 
inch wire glass is always required. 

In addition to putty, the lights are held 
by steel glazing angles measuring )4. by 
i^- inch: the long leg bears against the 
glass. The angles are held by steel screws. 

Not more than two ventilators may be 
used in any window unit. 




Spring Catch and Stay Bar. Former has 
fusible link in chain. Latter may be used 
instead of Catch and Chain, subject to ap- 
proval of local inspection boards. 



26 



LUPTON PIVOTED WINDOWS 



5. The Hinge is of standard Lupton design 
and construction. 

6. Spring Catches are of standard Lupton 
construction. The Catch is at the bottom 
of the ventilator, so that its own weight 
tends to engage it if the Spring fails. The 
Chain passes over a standard roller at the 
top of the ventilator.

-fU/IBLE 
LINK 




The Chain must contain a Fusible Link. 
When the Link fuses, the ventilator closes 
and locks automatically. 

With the approval of the local inspection 
"board, Stay Bars for manual operation 
may be used instead of Spring Catches 
and Fusible Links. 

Mullions must be Lupton Section 339 
and must be anchored at head or sill, 
either by projecting into the masonry, or 
by angle clips. Lupton Wall Ties No. 
EL-I739, or other wall ties not less than 
4 in. long are required at brick and con- 
crete sills. 

Expansion Clips must be used at the top 
and bottom rails of all ventilators. These 
Clips serve as an additional locking fea- 
ture in case of fire. 

OneStopLug per ventilator must be used 
to limit opening of ventilator to 135 .

Standard Camber and Circle 
Head Windows 



Present day design of industrial buildings 
usually calls for windows having square heads. 
However, in some types of construction, gen- 
erally brick, camber and circle heads are still 
preferred. In many cases, curved heads are 
specified to carry out the appearance of older 
buildings in the same group; in others the 
architectural design will properly use square 
heads in lower floor units and curved heads 
above. It is to fill requirements such as these 
that we offer the standard units shown on the 
following page. 

Through the use of these units, as well as 
the standard square head units shown else- 
where in this catalogue, the buyer has a wide 
range of choice that will fill the average de- 
mands. Both the camber and circle head 
units are made to use the same glass sizes as 



the standard Lupton Pivoted Windows (12 x 
18 in.) and (14 x 20 in.). 

All separate camber and circle heads to and 
including 7 ft. ^H tn. wide (6 lights of glass), 
are furnished with Lupton section 319 at sill. 
Where it is required to use separate camber 
or circle heads of a width greater than 7 ft. 
2}i in., Lupton section 308 is used at the sill. 
This is done to permit attaching to a struc- 
tural horizontal mullion which is called for 
when width exceeds the six lights wide dimen- 
sion. See details, page 38. 

Units, other than those shown on page 38, 
are special, and require a longer time for 
fabrication and take a higher price. It is well 
to consult the nearest Lupton branch before 
departing from the standard sizes.

Lupton Operating Device 

Pivoted Window Operators 



Lupton Operating Device is a high-grade 
type of torsion operator in which the inherent 
weaknesses of the torsion type have been elim- 
inated. It is intended to operate medium 
length runs of center pivoted sidewall win- 
dows and top hung and bottom hinged wood 
windows. It can be applied with equal satis- 
faction to existing windows as to a new in- 
stallation. For lines of windows over 80 ft. 
or for more than twelve average size ventila- 
tors of sidewall windows, and for steel 
continuous windows, Pond Operating Device 
(tension type) is always recommended. It is 
described in-'another catalogue. 

The mechanism of Lupton Operating Device 
consists of a worm, a segment gear, a torsion 
shaft, lever arms and vent rods. Two sizes are 
carried, 1 in., and ]/ 2 in. The larger will oper- 
ate window runs up to 80 ft., 40 ft. each side 
of the power, or about twelve average size 
ventilators. The >^ in. size will operate a total 
length of about 20 ft., or about four average 
size ventilators. Torsion shaft for 1 in. device 
is 1 t& in. and for the }4 in. device J^ in., both 
outside dimensions. 

Vent rods are flat steel bars. Worm is 
machine cut from a solid steel bar. Torsion 



shaft supporting brackets and power brackets 
are malleable iron and are designed to fit 
steel window T-Bar mullions, or may be 
applied to building structure. Malleable iron 
is used also for the lighter parts such as 
vent rod clips; chain guards and other parts 
are first quality grey iron castings. 

Adjustable brackets are provided for tor- 
sion shaft when necessary. All brackets are 
accurately drilled to fit torsion shaft and 
bronze pins are furnished for connections at 
each end of vent rods, and in the universal 
joints. Where hand wheel control is used, the 
operating rod is a % in. round cold rolled steel 
shaft, supported by adjustable brackets. 

Lupton Operating Device is designed to 
eliminate lost motion and excessive play. In 
the powers and mitre gear hand wheel control 
assemblies all bearing surfaces are machined 
and holes drilled to jigs to insure accurate 
alignment. All parts are given a shop coat of 
paint, oven-dried. 

Details on following pages cover applica- 
tions for the most usual conditions. We shall 
be glad to study your requirements and make 
the best recommendations. 




Lupton Operating Device, controlled by hand chains, is used to operate the upper ventilators of 
Lupton Pivoted Windows in this drafting room.

Applications of Hand Chain Control 




View shows typical installation of Lupton Operating Device, with hand 
chain control, having shaft brackets attached to the steel window mullions. 
A standard 5-inch power bracket is used, with the addition of mullion clips, 
and standard 9-inch fixed brackets are used for connections at the mullions. 
See details on page 41. Ventilators are shown in closed position. 




An application of Lupton Operating Device, hand chain control, to Lupton 
Pivoted Windows. Here the shaft brackets are supported at the wall. See 
details on page 41. When windows are set 4 or 8 inches from the inside face 
of the wall, standard 9- or 13-inch fixed brackets may be used at mullions. 
For special offsets, the adjustable brackets are used at the mullions. The 
power bracket can be 5 or 7 inches. In this view, the window ventilators are 
shown in an open position.

Applications of Hand Wheel Control 





Views of power of Lupton Operating Device, Hand Wheel Control This is 
the usual method of operation when it is desired to operate several tiers of 
ventilators from one station. Where space permits, the hand wheel in hori- 
zontal plane (view at right) is more efficient and economical than the mitre 
eear hand wheel assembly (left). The operating rod is ^-inch round cold 
rolled steel and is supported every 6 feet by adjustable brackets. When 
desired we furnish a cast iron housing for the mitre gears with hand wheel in 
a vertical plane. 

The views above show the two methods of attaching the power brackets, 
that at the left being to a standard Lupton Steel Window Mullion and the 
other to a brick wall.

Lupton Commercial Steel Doors 



For all commercial uses, Lupton Commercial 
Steel Doors will prove to be a permanent in- 
vestment. Sturdily built throughout and easy 
to obtain and install, they represent a high 
class standardized product. They are being 
widely used in manufacturing plants, private 
and public garages, and buildings of all sorts, 
giving exceptional service under all conditions. 
Their low cost is possible because of large pro- 
duction and close adherence to a standard 
design. 

Construction 

The door stiles are made from 18 gauge steel 
plate, with the corners welded for rigidity. 
The lower panel is 16 gauge steel plate. Stand- 
ard doors have glass lights in upper section, 
with solid steel plate below. Two types of 
doors are available, hinged and sliding. 

The Lupton method of building these doors 
insures a finished product which cannot warp, 
swell or twist out of line. They open and close 
as easily after long use as they do when origi- 
nally installed. 

Details and Sizes 

Details and standard sizes of the hinged 
doors are shown on page 50; of the sliding type 
on page 5 1 . There are five sizes of single leaf 
doors in each style. Chart of sizes shows how 
these can be arranged in pairs. 

Hardware 

Lupton Commercial Steel Doors include 
only the hinges for hinged doors and tracks 
and hangers for the sliding type. Other hard- 
ware, including locks, pulls, top and bottom 
bolts and frame and door stops must be spec- 
ified in the order if wanted with the doors. 
When mortise lock No. 97 is ordered with 
doors, they will be mortised and drilled by 
Lupton to receive it. When doors are shipped 
mounted in frame we drill and attach hinges. 
Otherwise holes for attaching astragals, hinges 
and other hardware are drilled by the user.
